Now imagine VancityBuzz leaked a picture of you. There goes your reputation.
I hope VCB goes out of business and die. Not only their journalism is poor, their comment section is oppressively maintained. They ban many that offer a constructive view.

The only decent writer they got is Kenneth Chan.

Some ppl need to take their PCness and shove it. There's a reason why racial profiling is a thing. They put themselves in the position in the first place. And with the reason acts of terrorism all over the place, I would rather have a preventative action than a clean up.

There is a reason why everything is a thing but that does not make it right.

Racial profiling sure would have worked in Boston.

Stats for what. If you want to look at Muslim attacks it's not as one sided as you think just look at Russia. Also we know terrorists are stupid but there not that stupid. They are recruiting people that are white.

Also racial profiling does not work just look at the studies.

Well racial profiling does not work and that's a fact and Russia has been dealing with attacks by Muslims for years who look like the Boston bombers.

The more I hear people complain about race and racial profiling the more I think about the movie Bulworth and how it kinda makes sense

But then you're pointing out something EVERYONE already knows and EVERYONE has taken into account. I don't see the need to point this out as if to put some people in their place or put things into perspective. The context is entirely different and people are "specifically" reacting to this particular context.

And also, you have to give people some credit. No one is saying these individuals warrant getting arrested for their actions. However, people are just saying it warrants some investigation. That's all. Although your intentions are noble, all this SJWing is doing nothing but promoting the bias and anti-Muslim sentiment because you're insinuating that these are the primary factors for such public reactions and that the public wouldn't react the same had it been Caucasians performing the same suspicious acts.

Again, no one is asking for these guys to be arrested at all unless an investigation concluded their intentions were in fact malicious.

Can we refrain from giving Vancity Buzz an acronym, and if it was to be any acronym it would have to be VSB (vanshittyBUZZ), seriously poster above is bang on, poor sources, poor writing, and just generally disgusting and crappy content.

All they do is steal headlines off of Facebook, literally it isn't even journalism, any journalist would be disgusted that you call it that.

Half their articles just promote companies, places, and events for which the people have paid them money to endorse. That's not journalism, it's just a social media following.

I wonder if whoever leaked it sent it exclusively to them or if they were the first to push it out without anyone actually screening the article first? That being said I am guilty for sharing this article on facebook since they seemed to have it first before the real news outlets

I doubt anything will happen since the men were innocent BUT I really hope Vancity Buzz comes under fire for all this.

Wasted emotions over a non-issue. Leaking something to the public to claim a 'me first' victory. What a fucking joke. Pages like theirs are a cancer to social media.

And WTF do they do with all the ad revenue they generate? They certainly don't hire good writers...

Listening to all the bigots trying to justify their bigotry today, omg it's like going to a good comedy show

There's a line between being concerned with auspicious activity and full blown racism, its shocking how many easily waltzed over that line, most have egg on their face now but some die hards are saying "yeah, got a problem with it?"
